030116. This English dark ale is a drop worth hunting down as it is loaded with flavour and carries a long strong finish. I picked up this 500ml bottle at Cool Wine in Hobart a few months back and I am glad that I did.
More malty than hoppy or bitter the beer pours a translucent copper colour with a thick head that settles and thins out after a while. There is caramel and some toffee aromas in the nose, with some vanilla hiding in the background.
The flavour very much mirrors the aroma , with some spiced fruit thrown into the mix, and the beer while initially thin in the mouths builds to a creamy mouthfeel. At 5.3% ABV it is certainly very drinkable. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pictures bottle from Keg Liquors; split four ways. Aroma: Rich caramel biscuit and some hazelnut as well; maybe a little in the way of woodsy, earthy hop character. Appearance: Slightly hazy chestnut pour with a ring of bubbly tan head. Flavor: Hazelnut over caramel throughout with a subtle woodsy puff towards the finish, which is mostly dry. Palate: Lighter body, slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Didn’t move me much one way or the other; could certainly drink again, but not in a hurry to grab another bottle. Preferred the Morocco ale much more. bigbish (712) - California, USA - SEP 15, 2015
